» Lunch & Learn: Religion in the Workplace


<p>Religious diversity in the workplace can bring many benefits in the form of different viewpoints. Managing religious diversity in the workplace, however, can be challenging.</p> <p>Respect and acceptance of religious views is vital, as well as being able to accommodate those who may need extra time off or may have special needs that are dictated by their religious preference. By following a few guidelines, it is possible to have a workplace that is enriched by its diversity.&nbsp;Among the issues that will be discussed at the Lunch and Learn are:</p> <ul> <li>How to raise awareness and understanding of faith in the workplace</li> <li>How to recognize and respond to religious discrimination</li> <li>How to provide reasonable accommodations</li> </ul> <p>This free program, sponsored by the Office of Institutional Equity, is open to students, faculty, and staff. Lunch will be provided to those in attendance. For more information, please contact Kelly Prunty at <a href="mailto:kqprunty@salisbury.edu">kqprunty@salisbury.edu</a> or 410-677-5311.
